Campo Viejo 2002 Gran Reserva, Rioja $20.
|Vibrant deep ruby garnet color is unusual for a Gran Reserva. Aromas of jasmine lotion, cherry pie crust and cocoa follow through on a supple, soft entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with baked spices and mild sandalwood notes. Finishes with a crisp, apple skin, praline, and mineral fade. A harmonious and florid modern styled Gran Reserva that doesn't go over the top; pair with veal and Asian beef dishes.
